It’s about to get wild along Woking High Street this May with the installation of a 75 metre living wall.
The green initiative has been planned to complement the transformation of Albion Square by providing an attractive natural feature that will run the length of the train station’s exterior wall. It will also serve as a leafy frame for the town’s iconic mural that depicts life along High Street in Edwardian times.
The ivy screens that will make up the continuous wall, will comprise a mix of species for interest and colour, and as well as attracting insects and wildlife in this part of town, the living wall will also help to improve air quality by trapping and capturing pollutants.
Industry leader, Mobilane UK Ltd, has been appointed to install the ivy screens, which will be fed by their innovative drip line irrigation system.
The week-long installation will start on Monday 29 April and may cause some disruption to road-users authorised to access High Street.
